Imperial Villa del Casale, probably the finest and most extensive display of mosaics of the late Roman era anywhere in the world. North African art influenced style, both in composition and the choice of colorful polychrome materials. The owners lived in luxury: the villa had its own private thermae, a reception hall, large restrooms and living rooms. Today, only the bottom part of the walls with a few frescoes and the floor mosaics remain.
After a lunch break, continue to your hotel in Taormina (or Catania)
